iOS 13 is just around the corner. At WWDC, Apple will finally release the 13th version of its popular iPhone and iPhone operating system. As iOS starts to mature, what we hope most from it are smaller changes.
iOS 13 – New Features
There will be a lot of smaller changes to the new version of iOS such as updated Share Sheets, updates to the Mail app and more. Small features that put an end too little frustrations of using an iPhone and iPad.
As bigger features like Dark Mode have already leaked, so let’s take a look on some features Apple will be packing into their latest version of iOS.
Using a glaringly bright phone in the dark is horrible – that’s why so many apps now have Dark Mode, switching apps to a black theme that’s easier on the eyes. For instance, Twitter already offers a darker theme for users who regularly browse in the night.
If you are using and OLED screen such as an iPhone X, XS, XS max then you will also save battery life and take advantage of OLED technology. Dark mode is definitely coming to iOS this year as there has been several leaks this year confirming this.
Apple is working on a sleep mode available in the Control Center that will toggle on Do Not Disturb, make the Lock screen darker, and mute all incoming notifications. It will also include improvements to the Bedtime tab in the Clocks app.
UPDATED VOLUME HUD
iOS 13 is rumoured to include a new volume HUD that’s perhaps going to be less obtrusive than the current one.
Just like the volume hud, Siri will most likely get an update so users will be able to use their display as-well as talk to Siri. There are also rumours that Siri will get a lot smarter and be able to do much more.
Updates to the Messages app will include a WhatsApp-style feature allowing users to create a profile picture and display name, and then choose who sees it.
The Maps app will include new features that will make it easier to set and navigate to frequent locations, like home or work addresses.
Safari in iOS 13 on iPad will automatically load a desktop version of websites when necessary, and Apple is testing a downloads manager for Safari that would let users access downloads in a single location.
Apple love Emojis? Well more are being added such as flamingo, otter, waffle, sloth, white heart, people holding hands, ice cube, snorkel, orangutan, juice box, falafel, and more.
Do not count on nothing major. Apple will be updating most of their applications with new features however there will not be a major changes to the OS, there might be a new feature such as home screen widgets or something however we are not 100% sure at this moment. Check out our iOS 13 Wishlist here.
iOS 13 Release Date
iOS 13 reveal date is Monday, June 3. Apple has historically unveiled its new software at its WWDC 2019 keynote in San Jose and it’s always the first Monday in June. There will most likely will be a beta released on that day, however the final version will arrive in the fall.
Be sure to stay locked in for the latest coverage.
